Mini Bio (1)

The remarkable, hyper-ambitious Material Girl who never stops reinventing herself, Madonna is a seven-time Grammy Award-winner who has sold over three hundred million records and CDs to adoring fans worldwide. Her film career, however, is another story. Her performances have consistently drawn scathing or laughable reviews from film critics, and the films have usually had tepid, if any, success at the box office. Born Madonna Louise Ciccone in August 1958 in Bay City, Michigan, she moved to New York in 1978 and studied with renowned choreographer Alvin Ailey, joined up with the Patrick Hernandez Revue, formed a pop/dance band called Breakfast Club and began working with then-boyfriend Stephen Bray on recording several disco-oriented songs. New York producer/D.J. Mark Kamins passed her demo tapes to Sire Records in early 1982 and the rest is history. The 1980s was Madonna's boom decade, and she dominated the music charts with a succession of multimillion-selling albums, and her musical and fashion influence on young women was felt around the globe. Madonna first appeared on screen in two low-budget films marketed to an adolescent audience: A Certain Sacrifice (1979) and Vision Quest (1985). However, she scored a minor cult hit with Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) starring alongside spunky Rosanna Arquette. Madonna's next effort with then husband Sean Penn, Shanghai Surprise (1986), was savaged by critics, although the resilient star managed to somewhat improve her standing with her next two films, the off-beat Who's That Girl (1987) (although she did receive decidedly mixed reviews, they weren't as negative as those of her previous effort) and the quirky Damon Runyon-inspired Bloodhounds of Broadway (1989). The big-budget and star-filled Dick Tracy (1990) had her playing bad girl "Breathless Mahoney" flirting with Warren Beatty, but the epic failed to catch fire at the box office. Taking an earthier role, Madonna was much more entertaining alongside Tom Hanks and Geena Davis in A League of Their Own (1992), a story about female baseball players during W.W.II. However, she again drew the wrath of critics with the whodunit Body of Evidence (1992). Several other minor screen roles followed, then Madonna starred as Eva Perón in Evita (1996), a fairly well received screen adaptation of the hugely successful Broadway musical, for which she received a Golden Globe for Best Actress. The Material Girl stayed away from the movie cameras for several years, returning to co-star in the lukewarm romantic comedy The Next Best Thing (2000), followed by the painful Swept Away (2002). If those films weren't bad enough, she was woefully miscast as a vampish fencing instructor in the James Bond adventure Die Another Day (2002). After finally admitting that her acting days were over, Madonna began a directing career in 2008 with the barely remembered Filth and Wisdom (2008) and a year later she reunited with Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991) director Alek Keshishian to develop a script about the relationship between the Duke of Windsor and the Duchess of Windsor that led to his abdication in 1936: the result, a movie named W.E. (2011), starring James D'Arcy and Andrea Riseborough as the infernal but still royal couple, was released in 2011 to lukewarm critics but it gathered one Oscar nomination for costumes and won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for "Masterpiece".

Lost custody of her son Rocco Ritchie to ex-husband Guy Ritchie in March 2016. Over the Christmas holidays in 2015, Rocco decided to live with his dad in London instead of returning to his mother, who lives in New York. This decision ensued in a custody battle over whether Rocco needs to be forced to return to live with his mother against his will or whether he could stay and live with his father. It was ruled in March 2016 that Rocco can live with his father, while he can visit his mother during holidays in the US.
When director Penny Marshall cast Madonna in A League of Their Own (1992), leading lady Debra Winger angrily told her, "You're making an Elvis movie." Marshall didn't know what that meant, which frustrated Winger even more, since she dropped out of the film and Geena Davis got her role. Madonna was no fan of Winger either, since she told Carrie Fisher that one of her nicknames was Kit Moresby, until she saw Winger play Kit in The Sheltering Sky (1990). She told Fisher, "I didn't want to be Kit Moresby anymore, because it was so disappointing. I didn't want people to think that I was Debra Winger." What's ironic is that both their ex-husbands Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn worked together twice in Taps (1981) and The Falcon and the Snowman (1985) and became friends.
July 1983: Third single from the album "Madonna", "Holiday" bursts onto pop radio. In October 1983, the single finally became Madonna's first Billboard Hot 100 Hit in the US, climbing to #16. It stayed on the chart for 12 weeks. The single also stayed at #13 on the European charts for 2 weeks. Certified Silver in the UK & France. Other chart activity includes: #4 in Australia. #6 in the UK. #9 in Germany. #10 in Japan. #24 in France. #34 in Canada. Peaking at #16, it is her first charting single in the US. The track solidified her roots in dance clubs - it was her first #1 single on the Billboard Dance/Disco chart. The single featured "Holiday (Single Edit)" and "I Know It (Album Version)".
January 1985: Second single from the album "Like A Virgin", "Material Girl" released. While certainly intended as a send-up of mid-80s commercialism and greed, the single was (of course) misinterpreted and gave Madonna her most well-worn nickname. The bass-heavy affair was produced by Nile Rodgers and quickly flew up the charts around the world, hitting #2 in the US Billboard Top 100 Chart and top five status internationally. At one point during "Material Girl"'s US chart run, it was joined by "Crazy For You" in the US top five, a rarity in the chart world. The songs music video was almost as notorious as the song itself. Mary Lambert directed the clip - inspired heavily by Marilyn Monroe's performance of "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) - that would prove inescapable on MTV in the spring of 1985. On 13th September 1985, the video garnered Madonna her first Best Female Video nomination at the 1985 MTV Video Music Awards (1985). The single stayed on the US charts for 17 weeks. It also hit #1 in Japan for 2 weeks and peaked at #3 in the UK for 2 weeks. Other chart placings include: #4 in Australia. #5 in Canada & Europe. #13 in Germany. #47 in France. The 12" single featured: "Material Girl (Extended Dance Mix)" and "Pretender (Album Version)".
April 1985: Third single from the album "Like A Virgin", "Angel/Into The Groove" is a rather curious single in Madonna's chart history. While "Into The Groove" is easily of her most enduring 1980s era singles, it never charted on the US Hot 100. Since it was never released as a 7" single and its only commercial release in America came as the b-side to the 12" single of "Angel", it didn't qualify to enter Billboard's pop chart. Curiously, it did hit #19 on the Hot Black Singles chart. "Angel/Into The Groove" was released as a double A-side single in the US (where it spent 17 weeks, peaked at #4 and was certified Gold), Canada (where it hit #19) & #1 in Australia for 4 weeks. In other territories the singles were released separately. "Angel" peaked at #5 in the UK (where it was certified Silver), #3 in Japan, #13 in Europe, #31 in Germany and didn't chart in France. "Into The Groove" became Madonna's first #1 hit in the UK, and still holds the record for her longest running chart topper there (a month - four weeks, tied with "Vogue"), where it was Certified Gold), #1 in Japan for 3 weeks and #1 in Europe for a week. The music video for "Into The Groove" was made up entirely of scenes from the film Desperately Seeking Susan (1985). The video in the US was firmly rooted on heavy rotation. Other chart activity includes #2 in France & #3 in Germany (where it was certified Silver). In later years "Into The Groove", still one of Madonna's most loved dance songs was ranked #40 on VH1's 100 Greatest Dance Songs. The US 12" vinyl featured: "Angel (Extended Dance Mix)" and "Into The Groove". The "Into The Groove" 7" release featured: "Into The Groove" and "Shoo Bee Doo".
August 1984: Fifth single from album "Madonna", "Lucky Star" was her first US Top Five hit (peaking at #4), and the first in a string of 17 consecutive US top fives. It spent four months (16 weeks) on the Hot 100 before it was pushed aside by her next single, "Like A Virgin". The video, directed by Arthur Pierson, was a stark performance piece, again bringing together her brother Christopher Ciccone and Erika Belle as backup dancers. The clip was filled with black rubber jelly bracelets, lace and a certain gyrating belly button. The single was initially released in the UK in 1983, instead of "Burning Up/Physical Attraction", where it did not chart. Reissued in the UK in 1984, it would peak at #14. Other chart activity includes: #2 in Japan (for 2 weeks). #16 in Canada. #29 in Europe. #36 in Australia. The single did not chart in France or Germany. The single included: "Lucky Star (Single Edit)" and "I Know It (Album Version)".
February 1984: Fourth single from album "Madonna", "Borderline" was Madonna's first US Top Ten single (peaking at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100), where it spent an incredible 30 weeks on the Hot 100 - a feat matched by only one other single: "Take A Bow" in 1994. The songs video was the first of many collaborations with Mary Lambert, and it earned Madonna a 1984 MTV Video Music Award nomination for 'Best New Artist in a Video'. This was also Madonna's first Gold single in the US. Other chart activity includes: #12 in Australia. #22 in Canada. #26 in Japan. #56 in Europe. The single featured: "Borderline (Single Edit)" and "Think Of Me (Album Version)".
9th March 1983: Second single from the album "Madonna", the double-sided 12" single "Burning Up / Physical Attraction" was the follow-up to "Everybody" and quickly ascended the Disco chart. The rather rockin' A-side climbed and peaked at #3, matching its predecessor's success. Steve Barron directed the music video for "Burning Up", who at the time was best known for lensing the video for Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean". The clip was never widely seen, as "Burning Up" failed to catch on outside of dance clubs. This was Madonna's debut single in Australia, peaking at #13 on the Australian AMR chart. The single failed to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100, Europe, Germany, France & Japan. The single was not released in the UK. The single featured "Burning Up (12" Version)" and "Physical Attraction (Album Version)".
1985: Second single from the Vision Quest (1985) soundtrack, "Gambler" hit #4 in the UK, where it would be certified Silver. While "Gambler" was never released as a single in the US and Canada, it still became popular in America thanks to the video being played constantly on MTV. The video for the single consisted of footage from the Harold Becker film starring Matthew Modine. Other chart activity includes: #8 in Europe, #10 in Australia, #12 in Japan, #25 in Germany, #35 in France. The 7" single featured: "Gambler" - Madonna and "Nature Of The Beach" - Black 'n Blue (both from the Vision Quest soundtrack).
July 1984: Produced by Chic's Nile Rodgers, the first single from the album "Like A Virgin", "Like A Virgin" remains one of Madonna's most popular and enduring singles. It spent six weeks at #1 in the U.S. (her second longest run at the top) and also hit #1 in Japan (for 4 weeks), Canada (for 3 weeks), Europe (for 5 weeks) and Australia (for 5 weeks). Mary Lambert directed the 'Madonna goes to Venice' music video, which featured Madonna performing through the canals in blue spandex tights and teased hair. The video featured panting lions, Madonna slinking around in a wedding dress and a hot guy in a tuxedo with a lion mask. On 13th September 1985, the clip earned three 1985 MTV Video Music Award nominations: Best Choreography, Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography. On 14th September 1984, Madonna would also give a memorable performance of the song at 1st Annual MTV Video Music Awards (1984). The single would stay in the US Billboard charts for 19 weeks. Other chart placings include #3 in the UK, #4 in Germany and #8 in France. It would be certified Gold in the US & UK, and Silver in Germany. This was her first #1 single. The 12" single featured: "Like A Virgin (Extended Dance Remix)" and "Stay (Album Version)".
February 1985: Recorded for the Vision Quest (1985) soundtrack in 1983, "Crazy For You" reached #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100, #1 in Australia (for 3 weeks), #1 in Japan (for 4 weeks) and #2 in the UK. In February 1986, Madonna earned her first Grammy nomination when she scored a nod for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, for "Crazy For You" at The 28th Annual Grammy Awards (1986). Other chart activity includes: #2 in the UK. #4 in Canada. #6 in Europe for 6 weeks. #36 in Germany. #47 in France. Staying on the US Billboard Chart for 21 weeks, it was certified Gold in both the US and UK. In 1991, "Crazy For You" was re-released in the UK and again hit #2. The video for the single consisted of footage from the Harold Becker film starring Matthew Modine. The 7" single featured: "Crazy For You" - Madonna and "No More Words" - Berlin (both from the Vision Quest (1985) soundtrack).
6th October 1982: The very first commercially available single, "Everybody", was one of the tunes that got her signed to Sire Records. Written by Madonna, it was included on her four-track demo tape and eventually found its way to her 1983 debut album. The 12" vinyl single was released in the fall of 1982 to clubs where it garnered critical acclaim, and upon its debut on Billboard's Dance/Disco Top 80 chart, the magazine's "Dance Trax" columnist Brian Chin reviewed the single. He wrote: "Madonna, a young New York duo (??) produced by DJ Mark Kamins, has released a commercial 12-inch on Sire, called "Everybody"; previewed favorably on clubs and radio, the spare, bright cut has a relaxing quality at home listening levels, but somehow sounds much harder- edged in the club". The video that accompanied the single was a low-budget affair, and featured Madonna performing the track with dancers Christopher Ciccone (her brother) and Erika Belle. "Everybody" would reach No. 3 on the chart, beginning Madonna's unparalleled domination of Billboard's dance charts for the next 20 years. The single unfortunately failed to chart on the US Billboard Top 100 Chart, Canada, Europe, the UK, Germany, France & Japan. The single was not released in Australia. Her first single out of the gate, the 12" vinyl included the 12" Version and Dub Version.
November 1984 saw the release of "Like A Virgin", Madonna's second studio album, and the set that would make her a household name. Produced by Chic's Nile Rodgers, the opus churned out four US top five singles: the title track (#1 for six weeks), "Material Girl" (#2), "Angel" (#5) and "Dress You Up" (#5). The album remains her biggest selling studio set in the US with over 10 million units sold (certified 10xPlatinum). "Like A Virgin" spent three weeks atop the Billboard 200 albums chart at #1 (her first #1 album) and lingered on the tally for over two years. The album stayed in the Billboard Top 10 for 33 weeks, Top 40 for 52 weeks, Top 100 for 70 weeks and 200 for 108 weeks (More than 2 years). The song "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" would be released as a single 12 years later in 1996. Other chart activity includes: #1 in the UK for 6 weeks (where it was certified 6xPlatinum), #1 in Germany for a week (certified Platinum), #2 in Australia (certified 7xPlatinum), #2 in France (certified 2xPlatinum) & #3 in Canada for 5 weeks (certified 10xPlatinum).

September 1983: Her debut album "Madonna" climbed to #8 (for three weeks) on the US Billboard Top 200, spending a whopping 168 weeks on the chart.

[December 1985] So then I'm playing drums and we're getting gigs in certain downtown clubs like CBGB and the Mud Club, and Max's Kansas City. And I'm starting to write music for the band, too, like some songs, but they already had two singers in the band, so they would never let me get up and sing a song because what's the point? One day I finally convinced them: "I'll just play guitar and sing one song. Please, please, please." And they finally said, "OK." So then I got up to sing one song and the other guy went back to play the drums. And like I got a standing ovation.
[December 1985] I befriended one DJ in particular and he worked at a club called Danceteria, which was one of my favorite clubs. And we talked a lot about music. I knew a lot about singers, and I knew a lot about different groups and stuff like that. And he said, "How come you know so much about this?" And I said, "I'm really interested in music." And he said, "Well, in what way?" And I said, "I'm a singer." He said, "No kidding?" And I said, "Yeah, and I just happen to have this tape right here." I mean, I was carrying this tape with me everywhere, at every club, waiting for the moment to pop it on somebody. So I said, "Would you play it?" And he said, "Well, I can't play it in the middle of the night. I haven't heard it. What if it's terrible? What if everyone stops dancing?" And I said "Alright, well, you listen to it, take it home with you tonight, and listen to it. And I'll come back here tomorrow, and if you like it then you play it again." So that was a Friday night, so he went home. On Saturday night I met him again, and I came back before the club opened and he said he really loved it. So he played it. He played two songs. One of them was "Everybody".
[on Spice Girls] I like them. I know I am not supposed to. Every time someone says something bad about them, I say, "Hey, wait a minute, I was a Spice Girl once!"
[in Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991), about her fans] Even when I feel like shit, they still love me!
You have to be patient... I'm not!
[in Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991)] I hate people who hate women. Actually I hate people who hate!
I do think that the birth of my daughter was sort of a rebirth for me. It made me look at life in a completely new way. And that made me appreciate life in a way I don't think I ever had before.
[in Spin magazine, May 1985] When I was growing up, I was religious, in a passionate, adolescent way. Jesus Christ was like a movie star, my favorite idol of all.
[on Britney Spears] I feel really protective of her. Don't even ask me why. There's something about her. Even though she's terribly successful, for some reason I think of her as an underdog.
[on her relationship with Britney Spears] I see her as my little sister. She asks me for career advice. For the most part, I try to make her understand this isn't real life and she can't take everything people say seriously. I can understand some of the stuff she's going through. I help her with that.
[in People magazine, April 2003] I don't want people to dress like me anymore. Now I want them to think like me. Dress like Britney Spears and think like me, and everything will be fine.
I've learned from studying Kabbalah that if your happiness is based on people approving of everything you do, you're doomed to fail... Kabbalah helped me stand up and take responsibility for everything to do with me.
I can be arrogant sometimes, but I never mean it intentionally. I can be really snotty to people but that's not anything new really. I always acted like a star long before I was one. If people don't see my sense of humor then I come off as being expensive, but I always endear myself to people when I find their weaknesses and they acknowledge it. It's the people who try to hide everything and try to make you think they're so cool that I can't stand.
[about her famous appearance in 1994 on Late Show with David Letterman (1993)] That was a time in my life when I was extremely angry. The press was constantly beating up on me, and I felt like I was a victim. So I lashed out at people and Letterman was one of them. I am not particularly proud of it.
[in Rolling Stone magazine, December 2005, on George W. Bush's reelection in 2004 and the federal government's reaction in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina in 2005] I was just frigging devastated. It was a real sad day. I don't get how people can have all these facts and still turn away from them. [...] 9/11 was too ambiguous, you couldn't prove how the government was somehow in on the deal. There were too many arguments against it. You could say, "Oh, that's just Michael Moore," "Oh, that's just hearsay." New Orleans was undeniable irresponsibility.
If you take everything I do at face value, you're going to be horrified. Or intimidated. Or insulted. Or bored.
[during an interview on E! Television, May 2006] It is a struggle to balance my career with my children. I'm always going, 'Oh God, I'm a crap mother'. I want to get home and put my kids to bed. And then sometimes, if I'm spending a lot of time with my children, I think, 'Oh God, I just want to be an artist'.
[during an interview on E! Television, May 2006, about her daughter Lourdes Leon] Sometimes she doesn't want me to come to certain things because she knows everyone is going to pay attention to me and then they'll treat her differently. I took her to school on the first day last year, and all these kids were buzzing around. She came home that day and she was really irritated and kind of bummed out, like people were playing this contest - what would it be like to be Madonna's daughter?
[open letter about the adoption of her son David, October 2006] My husband and I began the adoption process many months prior to our trip to Malawi. I did not wish to disclose my intentions to the world prior to the adoption happening as this is a private family matter. After learning that there were over one million orphans in Malawi, it was my wish to open up our home and help one child escape an extreme life of hardship, poverty and in many cases death, as well as expand out family. Nevertheless, we have gone about the adoption procedure according to the law like anyone else who adopts a child. Reports to the contrary are totally inaccurate. The procedure includes an l8 month evaluation period after which time we hope to make this adoption permanent. This was not a decision or commitment that my family or I take lightly. I am overwhelmed and inspired by my trip to Malawi and hope that it helps bring attention to how much more the world needs to do to help the children of Africa. My heartfelt thanks for all the good wishes I have received and I hope the press will allow my family some room for us to experience the joy we feel to have David home.
[in Ladies Home Journal, July 2005] My kids don't watch TV - we have TV's, but they're not hooked up to anything but movies. [...] TV is trash. I was raised without it. I didn't miss anything. TV is poison. No one even talks about it around here. It's like a moot point. We don't have magazines or newspapers in the house, either.
[in Ladies Home Journal, July 2005] My daughter has a problem picking up in her room, so if you leave your clothes on the floor, they're going to be gone when you come home. So we've gone through periods of almost emptying her room - we take all of her clothes and put them in a trash bag, and they get stuck somewhere, and she has to earn all of her clothes back, by being tidy, picking up her room, making her bed in the morning, hanging up her clothes, stuff like that.
[in Rock Video magazine, February 1985] When I came to New York, it was the first time I'd ever taken a plane, it was the first time I'd ever gotten in a taxi cab, it was the first time for everything. And I came here not knowing anyone with thirty-five dollars in my pocket. It was the bravest thing I've ever done.
One of the hardest thing I've faced in my life was the death of my mother, and that's something I really haven't got over to this day.
[Sirius Satellite Radio interview, February 2007] I want to be like Gandhi and Martin Luther King and John Lennon - but I want to stay alive!
[in The Sun, July 2009] I am so terribly sad about Michael Jackson's death. I don't know what artist wasn't inspired by him. To be able to do what he did at such an early age was unearthly, everybody grew up in awe of him. To work with him and become friends and hang out with him was exciting for me. I used to love picking his brains about musical stuff.
[in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, October 2009] Younger people are generally more adventurous - they're more open, more fun - have you met many guys my age? Guys my age are married or divorced or grumpy, fat and balding.
[on the making of A League of Their Own (1992)] I cannot suffer any more than I have in the past month learning how to play baseball with a bunch of girls (yuk) in Chicago (double yuk). I have a tan, I am dirty all day and I hardly ever wear make-up. Penny Marshall is Lavern -- Geena Davis is a Barbie doll and when God decided where the beautiful men were going to live in the world, he did not choose Chicago. I have made a few friends but they are athletes, not actresses. I hate actresses, they have nothing on the house of extravaganza.
[on Edward, Duke of Windsor] I couldn't get my mind off the fact that a man gave up the throne for a woman. From my perspective, men since the beginning of time have fought to get on the throne. Men are power-seeking animals, so why would this man run away from power?
[in Rolling Stone magazine, February 1989] Being blonde is definitely a different state of mind. I can't really put my finger on it, but the artifice of being blonde has some incredible sort of sexual connotation. Men really respond to it. I love blonde hair but it really does something different to you. I feel more grounded when I have dark hair, and I feel more ethereal when I have light hair. It's unexplainable. I also feel more Italian when my hair is dark.
[during her MDNA Tour concert in Washington DC, September 2012] Y'all better vote for fucking Obama, O.K.? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House! Now that's some amazing shit. It means there's hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights so support the man goddammit.
[dressed in a Boy Scout uniform at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards] I wanted to be a Boy Scout but they wouldn't let me join. I think that's fucked up. I can build a fire. I know how go pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I want to do good for the community.
[in Interview magazine, December 2014] I was attracted to creative people. You don't want to be the smartest person in the room; you want to be the dumbest in the room.
[in Interview magazine, December 2014] We're in the world of creating illusions and giving people the ability to dream and to be inspired or moved. So you don't want people to see the labor behind it. Also I was trained that, as a dancer, no matter how much you're suffering, your face is relaxed. You have to create that illusion.
[in Interview magazine, December 2014] I live vicariously through Michael Corleone [from The Godfather (1972)]. I would like to deal with life the way he does. When he's telling what's-his-name that he's going to go on a little fishing trip. My God. Brilliant. Or the scene where Marlon Brando is talking to his dead wife in the casket in Last Tango in Paris (1972).
[in Interview magazine, December 2014] I remember having conversations with Keith Haring and with Jean Michel Basquiat about the importance of your art being accessible to people. That was their big thing - it should be available to everyone.
[in Interview magazine, December 2014] Sleeping is the most difficult part of what I do, relaxing afterwards. Letting things go.
[in Rolling Stone magazine, March 2015] Women, generally, when they reach a certain age, have accepted that they're not allowed to behave a certain way. But I don't follow the rules. I never did, and I'm not going to start.
[in US Weekly, March 2015] I don't really watch TV. I only like two shows - True Detective (2014) and an Irish series called The Fall (2013) - and I'm not embarrassed about them. Many people say, "The Fall" with Jamie Dornan,' but I say, "The Fall" with Gillian Anderson.' She's so good.
[in Rolling Stone magazine, March 2015] The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs. It's got nothing to do with "she's taking my crown" or "she's in some space of mine." She has her thing. I do think she's a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue. And everybody's obviously run with it and turned it into a huge feud, which I think is really boring, quite frankly.
[in the New York Daily News, March 2015, about the criticism she faced when she showed her ass at the Grammy Awards] Bitch, this is what my ass looks like - show me what your ass looks like when you're 56! [...] I take care of myself. I'm in good shape. I can show my ass when I'm 56, or 66 - or 76. Who's to say when I can show my ass? It's sexism. It's ageism. And it's a kind of discrimination.
[on the death of David Bowie] I'm devastated! This great artist changed my life! First concert I ever saw in Detroit! R.I.P.
I found him so inspiring and innovative. Unique and provocative. A real genius. His music was always inspiring but seeing him live set me off on a journey that for me I hope will never end. His photographs are hanging all over my house today. He was so chic and beautiful and elegant. So ahead of his time. Thank you David Bowie. I owe you a lot. The world will miss you.
[on the death of Prince] He changed the world!! A true visionary. What a loss. I'm devastated.
[in Details magazine, December 1994] It's common to have abortions. Many people have them and it's nothing to be ashamed of.
[following the death of George Michael] Another great artist leaves us. Can 2016 fuck off now?
[in the Washington Post, May 1991, to charges that she exploits gays to shock her audience] What does exploitation mean? ... In a revolution, some people have to get hurt. To get people to change, you have to turn the table over. Some dishes get broken. That's the only analogy that I can think of. It's the means to an end. And in the end, I don't think anyone's truly devastated by it. In fact, a lot of people have gotten work from it.
[at Women's March in Washington D.C., January 2017] I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won't change anything.
[Instagramming on Father's Day, 2017] Happy Father's day to me too because let's face it, I'm the Mommy and the Daddy. I don't care what the papers say.
[when Ruby Wax started to ask "When you fake an orgasm..."] I never have! I'm not getting out of the bed until he makes me cum.
[self description] A creamy smooth pop icon goddess.
[to gay dancer Jose Guitierez in Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991)] Get out of my bed and don't come back until your dick is bigger!
[in Spin magazine, January 1996] I came to the realization that a strong female is frightening to everybody, because all societies are male-dominated, black societies, poor people, rich people, any racial group, they're all dominated by men. A strong female is going to threaten everybody across the board . . . I know the majority of Americans think I walk around my house, jodhpurs on and a whip. That I eat men for breakfast and send out my limousine driver to pick up bushels of young men and women, and I let everybody else make my business decisions for me. Even really successful, intelligent men are so fucking scared of me, and buy into the hype.
[in ABC News Nightline (1980) with Cynthia McFadden, January 2012, discussing W.E. (2011) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's accusation that the Duke of Windsor and Duchess of Windsor held Nazi sympathies] First of all, the FBI is notorious for lying. Second of all, there is actually no empirical evidence that can prove that they were Nazis or Nazi sympathizers. You won't be able to give me any evidence. I promise you.
[in People magazine, April 2004] Kabbalah has made me a better human being. I have a successful marriage. That doesn't mean I don't have my ups and downs, but I have an open and honest relationship, and we work things out. Guy and I understand that we've embarked on a journey together. There's no way our relationship would work if we didn't both think the same way. I can't just write a silly pop song anymore. I feel the need to share what I've learned. I don't want to be boring and preachy. I still want to have fun. But I know there's a way to inspire and entertain people at the same time. I'm writing children's books that contain spiritual messages. I never would have done that before.
[MTV interview with Juliette Hohnen, September 1993] When people are afraid of your ideas it's their instinct to wanna quiet you and get rid of you, and they will do it any way they can: by starting rumors that you're dying of a terminal illness to saying that you've had plastic surgery to saying that you're old or you're ugly or you're untalented. They will resort to anything. The absurdity of it all is that now people are starting to write 10 page articles about how my career is over. And I sit there and I think, "Well, why are you writing about it?!"
[in People magazine, December 2004] I worry about everything, if I'm exposing my children to the right things, if I said the right thing in an interview . . . I'm a worrywort. I'm really a lot like everybody else.
[pickup line she fed Norris Burroughs in 1978] Get your gorgeous Brando body over here.
[in Rock Center with Brian Williams (2011), May 2012] People like to get attention and they know they can get attention for themselves by mentioning my name. I think some people are kind of stuck on my name like a needle on a record.
[in Esquire magazine, August 1994] When I'm onstage performing, or even when I was on the David Letterman show, I detach from myself. I have no control over that person. Though I know it's connected to my psyche and my soul, there's really nothing I can do about it.
I don't think about my old stuff. I just move forward.
[in Glamour magazine, February 2012] If you want to do anything right, you have to put your heart and soul into it. There are always challenges, and you have to be prepared to go to the wall and be on your knees to get something done correctly, so if you don't love something then it's just going to feel like a form of torture with no reward. Love your work and no sacrifice will be too big or too small. My other advice is: if you want the job done right, do it yourself. Sorry to use that tired old cliché, but it is true!
[in The Face magazine, September 1983] When I first started I think it offended a lot of people to find out I was white. Especially black radio programmers in the South. So many black artists won't get played that they don't want to give airtime to someone who isn't black. It's not like I'm ripping them off. Some of these new white producers are just scientists in a laboratory, making something they know all the little kids in the ghetto will want to buy. I'm at least sincere. I don't feel guilty about not being black. I think ultimately I will be able to cross over bigger because I'm not.
[April 2003, about Swept Away (2002)'s harsh reception] I just don't think people are comfortable with me doing well in other areas besides music. I think that there's a lot of evil eye on my relationship with my husband. We're in love, we have beautiful children together and now we're making a movie together. I mean how dare we, in a way. But at the end of the day, it's one thing to say you don't like the movie. Okay fine, don't like the movie. But they weren't really criticizing the movie. It was like personal vendettas.
[in Harper's Bazaar, December 2011] I find whenever someone writes anything about me, my age is right after my name. It's almost like they're saying, 'Here she is, but remember she's this age, so she's not that relevant anymore.' Or 'Let's punish her by reminding her and everyone else.' When you put someone's age down, you're limiting them.
Fantasies are essential. Without fantasies I would have died of starvation.
[to Eddy Moretti in September 2013, commenting on the global political climate] You think we're a civilization that's moving forward, but I'm sorry my friend, we are not! We are going backwards!
[at the premiere of Madonna: The MDNA Tour (2013), June 2013, when asked what kind of workout she does to keep in shape] I hate those questions. I did the show every fucking night, OK! Is that a workout? I mean, did you watch?
[in Dateline NBC (1992), October 2006] I have things I want to say and accomplish. Just staying home and looking after my children and being a mother and a wife is not what I want. I want more. If you want to affect change in the world you do have to have a platform to stand on, and in order to have a platform to stand on you have to keep doing your job. So I guess that's why I'm juggling, still.
[in Genre magazine, October 2002] I skip the huge breakfast. Once you eat it, I don't know how you can get up and move around...I go out and shoot some pheasants.
[in Rolling Stone magazine, September 2000] You can't go to London and not start drinking Guinness. And I have been known to eat fried fish and French fries. When in Rome - right?
[Us Weekly, March 2015] I can't stand mushrooms. Or escargot. Yuck! It's like snot. Expensive snot.
[Us Weekly, March 2015] The person I most want to meet is President Obama. When the heck am I going to meet him? He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I'm too shocking to be there. I'm serious. If I was a little bit more demure... or if I was just married to Jay-Z. Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I'd score an invitation.
[Us Weekly, March 2015] I miss absolutely nothing about growing up in Michigan. Nothing at all.
[Us Weekly, March 2015] The one thing I'd never be caught dead wearing is a fur bikini.
[Us Weekly, March 2015] I have found marriages don't last if you share bathrooms. The best thing about being single is there's no one to throw out of the bathroom when I want privacy.
I never even acknowledged my stepmother as a mother, I kept thinking of her as the housekeeper, so I was raised with only my father's influences. I tend to have what is traditionally thought of as a male point of view about a lot of things. I never grew up with a mother telling me I'd got to get married, have children and cook certain dishes, so I'm probably not as domestic and nurturing as other women. And I'm sure it gave me the balls to do a lot of things that I did.
[Spin, January 1996] I always thought that I appealed to the black and/or gay communities because they're minority groups and they are prejudged based on things that they have no control over. If you're born black, you have no control over that. If you're born gay you can't help that and you are judged by your sexual preference. The gay community does embrace me and is supportive of me; the black community, on the other hand does not.
[on "Material Girl" and "Like A Virgin", Rolling Stone, 2009] I liked them both because they were ironic and provocative at the same time but also unlike me. I am not a materialistic person, and I certainly wasn't a virgin, and, by the way, how can you be like a virgin? I liked the play on words; I thought they were clever. They're so geeky, they're cool. I never realized they would become my signature songs, especially the second one.
[Spin, January 1996] I identified with black men because I thought in a way we experience the same things - people treat you like shit 'cause you're black, people treat you like shit 'cause you're a woman. But that is not in fact the case.
[Record Mirror, February 1983] I prefer effeminate looking men and young boys. There are a lot of Puerto Rican boys where I live and if it outrages people when we go out together, that's fine by me. 15 or 16 year old boys are best and I like smooth thin men who aren't afraid to show their emotions and cry. I want to caress a nice smooth body, not a hulk.
[on late motherhood] I wasn't ready when I was 30 to have a kid.
[on her siblings] I'm very close to *some* of my brothers and sisters. There's too many of us!
Some people think that two is several. It depends on your point of view.
